Hello, I’m Paul Taylor. If you want to learn more about me, read on...
Up until the age of 23, I was blissfully unaware of hair loss or the pain it can cause. Despite many male members of my extended family suffering from this condition (androgenetic alopecia) I had absolutely no idea about what was in store for me just around the corner. So I went through university and then embarked on my career just like anyone else.
I left university with a B.Sc. honors degree in civil engineering and then joined the Royal Air Force (RAF) for pilot training. It was during this time that I first noticed my hairline beginning to recede.
Learning to fly an aircraft is obviously a very demanding occupation. But the stress involved was not the reason why I started losing hair. It was always going to affect me, just as it affects anyone else with the genetic tendency towards skull expansion.
However, it's probably true to say that the high pressure environment I was in didn't exactly help!
When I left the RAF, I worked for the civil service (Crown Prosecution Service) for two years in London before deciding to return to university for teacher training.
After qualifying as a school mathematics teacher and working for a couple of years, I traveled the world.
When I came back to Britain a year later, I became a licensed tennis coach with the Lawn Tennis Association (LTA). And, in pursuing that career, I also gained diplomas in sports psychology and advanced nutrition.
So, as you can see, I've had quite a colorful career so far.
A career that largely focused on education. Even in my spare time I studied!
believe that if you analyze hard enough and dedicate yourself for long
enough, you can solve almost any problem...
After I realized I was losing my hair back in 1989, it then rapidly progressed within just a couple of years.
And I was not happy about it!
The top photo was taken in 1991 (age 25) when my hair had only just started thinning at the crown. Although I tried very hard to cover up my receding hairline, you can still see how quickly it had receded away in just two years (see red arrow).
My hair loss continued getting worse and worse from 1989 to 1996. Then I finally figured out how to stop it (bottom photo).
I believe my qualifications and work experience gave me a unique perspective from which to view this problem.
A perspective no doubt very different from that which dermatologists, trichologists, etc. learn as medical students, whereby they're only taught the established theory for hair loss, and instructed to use only conventional drug products and treatments that have FDA approval.
All that studying I did developed a very analytical approach to problem solving. And that's how I eventually realized that skull expansion is the underlying reason behind this type of hair loss.
I was 30 when that happened. And very soon afterwards I developed the techniques I used to successfully restore strong, healthy hair regrowth.
My techniques gave me the healthy head of hair I still have today. And I'm extremely pleased with the results.
Once hair loss hit me, I felt uneasy about the idea of using drugs (minoxidil) for treatment. So that's why I wanted to find my own natural solution.
I wish it hadn't taken me all those years to figure out, but at least I got there in the end!
Later on I wrote "Here Today, Hair Tomorrow" to give other men and women who are losing their hair an opportunity to try my techniques.
And I decided to build this website so that other people can learn about skull expansion too. The platform I used to create HairGrowthSOS.com is Solo Build It! (SBI!). That was back in 2006. And I've been with them ever since. If you're looking to build a website yourself, it's worth a look: My SBI! Review.
So that's my background. Thanks for reading!
